The Sinner and the Savior

How much time had passed
From God telling Adam
Not to eat from the tree of knowledge
To the moment when Eve did
Was it a day, a month, a year?

How do we measure time
When no time has passed
Time cannot stand between
Me and my savior
No sin, no salvation
No time in between
The sinner and the savior

Rev 10:6-7
“And swear by him that lives for ever and ever…that there should be time no longer…the mystery of God should be finished…”

Savior

If you see sin

In your brother

Look again

 

Do we see in our brother

The sinner or the savior

 

We see in others

What is in ourself

 

Hebrews 9:28

“So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.”

 

The Beginning

From what point of view

Do we see things

 

From the end of time

Where we are now

On the outermost edges

 

We reflect back

To the beginning

And all in between

 

In the depths of time

We are the furthest yet

From the beginning

But can see it the clearest

 

Until we see all sides

Until all the facts are in

We cannot draw a conclusion

 

Until we have seen it all

We cannot make a judgment

Against the original sinner

She who was in the beginning

Where we are now

 

St. Matthew 7:1

“Judge not, that ye be not judged.”

 

Revelation 22:13

“I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.”

Savior

If the sinner

Gives rise to a savior

Who is the sinner

 

If one breaks the law

To fulfill the law

Who is the transgressor

 

These are the two

Who overcame death

And these two are one

The sinner and her savior

 

I Timothy 2:14-15

“And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.  Notwithstanding she shall be saved in childbearing, if they continue in faith and charity and holiness with sobriety.”
